Valencia CC Attempts to Meet Central Florida Demand

leave a comment »

Recent numbers released by Economic Modeling Specialists Incorporated show potential growth in the Central Florida job market. Orange, Osceola, Lake Sumter, and Seminole Counties are expected to see more than 800 openings in the fields of Radiology and Imaging services by 2014. The fields of electrical and computer engineering should see more than 200 job openings in the same period of time. These fields of study are expected to be the fastest growing in the Central Florida region in the next four years.

Radiology is a fast growing field in Central Florida

Valencia Community College hopes to meet demand in these fast growing fields with the beginning of their first undergraduate degree program as early as next year. The college is still awaiting approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools which is expected in December. Valencia is picking up degree programs that were lost at the University of Central Florida in July of 2009 due to budget cuts. The pressure should be on for Valencia to produce a quality program that can meet the demand for Central Florida employers. Valencia believes their program will be able to attract students looking for a program that costs less than the one formerly offered at UCF.
